Platte Canyon blanks Clear Creek

Craig Harper - For the Courant

IDAHO SPRINGS — “We got out swagger back!” a Platte Canyon football player exuded as coach Mike Schmidt gathered his team for the post-game huddle following a 40-0 victory over rival Clear Creek on Sept. 25.

To which Schmidt responded afterward, “I never thought we lost it. But if they feel that way, that’s better.”

At the least, said the Huskies’ Hank Bode, “We got our game back.”
